Firstly, I’d like to apologise for the lack of blogs from us recently, we have been out on the bank a bit but I’ve just lost track of doing the blogs, so I apologise, however WE ARE BACKKK!!
So, for the first blog back we are going to go back a couple weekends ago to my Birthday weekend where myself, my wife and my 2 little monkeys went to a little local lake to have a little bit of fun in the sun!
Upon arriving, the swim we ideally wanted had been taken so we decided to jump on the match lake for the day to try our hand at a bit of float fishing to try and keep the kids entertained whilst waiting for bites from the carp on the method feeder.
It wasn’t long before we were met with our first few fish on the float, some lovely Roach and Rudd, defiantly the biggest ones I’ve ever caught and a very cool start to our day
It wasn’t long before we were introduced to our first carp of the day, but just like buses instead of 1 at a time we had a triple take over 3 of our rods, this was honestly the most stressful time ever! But with all 3 fish landed safely the opportunity for photos was here, my son wasn’t the most impressed but my daughter soaked up the opportunity and I believe I have found my future fishing buddy!
So, with a few more fish under our belts and the sun beaming down with my wife slowly being cooked bless her we decided to wind in and call it a day, so with the last rod screaming off I handed the rod to my daughter and got this very awesome video of her playing and landing her first ever carp (A smaller 6ft/9ft rod is being purchased in the pipeline ready for her!)
With the day coming to an end, we finished on 16 fish within roughly 5 hours, both on float tactics and method feeders so an awesome trip and to celebrate my birthday with my loving family doing the thing I love the most is just amazing.
Thanks for tuning into another JT Carpers blog, where next time we will be telling you how we have been getting on at our syndicate lake, trust us you don’t want to miss it!
